Re: Should we somehow try to get rid of Amare?
Why we are blaming Amar'e for being injured? It's not like he meant to do it. Disappointment I get, but not anger.
I just see him as a bonus at this point. The team has been winning just fine without Amar'e this year. All the major pieces of that formula (Chander, Melo, Felton) will be good to go against the Celtics. If it's one-and-done again (how could it be this year?), it's all on Melo. He's gotten everything he wanted. His team, his coach, his buddies, no one who he has to share the ball with.
This playoff run may well be the most stark referendum on his career to date. I think it will be exciting. I don't see anyone in the East that's really worth a damn outside of the Heat and possibly the Bulls.
